There is a credible and viable alternative to using the park on the brownfield Heckford site which would cause far less impact on the local community and I believe this sight should be used instead of the park. The park is the only park in the area and is much used but especially needed for those who have poor health or who are trying to regain their health after illness. I use the park to relax in, to exercise in and to study in. Using the park as a construction site would take that away for years as the noise and disruption caused would negate the enjoyment and purpose of visiting a park and would leave a legacy of ventilating shafts, a road and a concrete carbuncle on the front. This is needless when there is an alternative.
